Tropical Dream

Tomorrow is the last day of August, and this marks the beginning of the end of summer - at least to me.  The temp is getting cooler and Labor Day is nigh.  Soon it will be fall and winter - my FAVORITE times of year! :)

But this year, I discovered a way to prolong summer just a tad.  In 12 days, Hubby and I will be heading for the Bahamas!  Warm sunny weather (hopefully), a wedding on the beach, plenty of bathing suits and suntan lotion.  Oh, and since all the food on the cruise is all-you-can-eat, there will be ... well, more food than we can eat!

The following card is a reflection of my mindset - I am already on the beach of CocoCay, sprawled out of a lounge chair, sipping a colorful drink.  I call it: TROPICAL DREAM.

I love this stamp set from StampinUp! - it is called Aviary.  The bird is stamped in regular ink, but the cage is embossed in black, so it gives the illusion of the cage being in front of the bird.  The background paper, ribbon and tiny flower jewels are things I just had lying around.  Gotta love the leftovers!

I hope this card has you thinking of a tropical paradise.

Happy Scrapping!
